instagram diary: lake edition

It feels like we just got back from our weekend at Lake Oconee, and it’s already time for another holiday. J is headed back to the lake, and L is excited for a family pool day at home.

Before we check out for 24 hours, we’ll share our pics from the weekend.

J is jetting to Chicago this weekend to celebrate the long Memorial Day weekend with our friend Anny. Planning a trip to Chi Town soon? Here’s what’s on our agenda:

1. Shopping on Michigan Ave: Also known as “Chicago’s Magnificent Mile” {glorious}, this is the place to be for picking up a souvenir or five.

2. Rooftop drinks at J. Parker: Located above the Hotel Lincoln, J.Parker offers the best views in Chicago. Can’t wait to relax with a pre-dinner cocktail and take it all in.

it doesn’t get much better than this.

3. Dinner at Nellcôte: Nellcôte specializes in kitchen-crafted cocktails and European-inspired small plates made with Midwestern ingredients, including pizzas and pastas that showcase house-milled Midwestern wheat. Sign. Me. Up.
